Good Things to Come
Sermon by Dr Peter Masters from Hebrews 10.1 on 19 May
Further proof that Old Testament Jews knew that their ceremonial worship were both lessons on grace and prophecy of Christ's work in signs. Here, also, the greatness of Christ is presented, and His present work of subduing all things by conquering hearts and progressively frustrating His enemies.

The Riches and Power of the Blood of Christ
Sermon by Dr Peter Masters from Hebrews 9.15 on 12 May
One of the purposes of Hebrews is to convince readers that the Old Testament saints actually knew that their worship was typical and figurative of the work of their coming Messiah. Here are aspects of the wonder and riches of the atonement to move believing hearts.

Release from Conformity
Sermon by Dr Peter Masters from Romans 12.2 on 19 May
We do not realise how conformed we are to the programming of society. Even when young and experimental we are being shaped in the ways of the world, but there is a way of escape and freedom - in fact radical transformation - in conversion to Christ. Here is how.

A View Into One's Soul
Sermon by Dr Peter Masters from Psalm 100.4 on 12 May
Whether or not we are thankful to God (the highest duty of the human heart) says more about our souls, our direction in life, and our eternal destiny than we realise. Here a range of attitudes to God are reviewed, showing our need to experience His power and love.
Sunday Evening Evangelistic
A PROPHET'S ADVICE TO CHRISTIAN WOKERS (Jeremiah 9-13) Here we glean the necessity of 1) strong sorrow for the lost, 2) ministering for conviction, 3) humbling ministry, 4) expansive labouring, 5) readiness for trials, 6) closeness to Christ. Precious and powerful verses to challenge and enliven sincere students of the Word. A message preached by Dr Masters on 22nd May (Wed Bible Study).
HOW TO PLEAD WITH SOULS (Jeremiah 5-6) Why does the prophet appeal to Judah to repent, when he knows they never will? So that God's heart in the matter will be seen, obstinacy revealed and so that individuals may find the Lord. Here are lines of appeal still to be used today. A message preached by Dr Masters on 15th May (Wed Bible Study).
TWO-TIMING THE LORD (Jeremiah 3) The unfaithful wife called back shows God's patience to rebellious Israel. How much more to true believers who should never delay repentance after waywardness. Compromised Judah prayed to the true God from idol shrines! Reasons why worldly evangelicals forfeit real blessing today. A message preached by Dr Masters on 1st May (Wed Bible Study).
Jeremiah Speaks to Us
Sermon by Dr Peter Masters from Jeremiah 2.1-2 on 24 April
Modern translators and writer destroy the message of Jeremiah by calling his words charges or accusations against Judah rather than pleadings (KJV). Here is how we are meant to read these pleadings and apply them to ourselves, to derive challenge and comfort.
